    “How do national developments in the
    Functional Skills strategies affect you and your students at a delivery level?”

    I am aware of Functional Skills being a political **** which Governments are constantly tapmering with i.e from Core Skills to Functional Skills and also encompassing Skills For Life, while I appreciate the need for a basic level of Literacy/Numeracy/ICT at all ages, how does the constant moving of the goal posts effect you? if at all?
    Thanks in advance
